Hello friends. Most of you probably know that I am not the acoustic type of player. My old FG403s is reserved entirely for campfires and parties.

Alas, a friend of mine talked me into forming an acoustic duo with him. So today I set about practicing, but I dont currently own an electric-acoustic guitar. Then I remembered that my mother gave me a single coil sound hole pickup for my Yammie 15 years ago, and I've never used it. So I plugged it into my 1x15 loaded 1975 Super Reverb.

Surprise, surprise. It sounded pretty dang decent, especially with a touch of reverb. I was amazed at how much I could shape the tone with the TMB stack on the amp. It had way more effect than it ever has with my electrics.

It's due to the salt air of St. Margarets Bay drifting in and out of the sound hole.;)

Hi cboutilier , i recently did the same thing with my Yamaki Deluxe Folk (1970) and a Kent (wc1b) hole pickup that my Mother gave me in 1966 through a fender super champ with a touch of reverb .It sounds so sweet . The Yamaki is nice on it`s own but this combination was a pleasant surprise . Steadfastly has a good point about the salt air , as they really poured the salt to the roads her this winter , lol :D .
